Congratulating ISA’s 2022 Award Winners

Wednesday, June 8, 2022 in News

The ISA Annual Awards Program gives us the opportunity to recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond to help strengthen the mission of ISA and the personal property appraising profession. In addition to bestowing more than 15 awards this year, ISA would like to give a huge thank you to the board, committee members, members, and staff for their hard work in keeping ISA running smoothly throughout such a difficult year. The effort and commitment to ISA have not gone unnoticed.

This year, ISA honored much-deserving 2022 award recipients at the virtual awards ceremony on May 31, which coincided with the ISA Annual Member Business Meeting. Please join ISA in congratulating the winners below for their significant contributions to the organization and its members.

President's Award

Libby has contributed to ISA for the past many years and has undertaken every possible role along the way.

When Libby's term as President ended, she became a director and, in no time, she found additional opportunities where work needs to be done, such as aspects of membership, committee guidelines and sponsorship, among others.

ISA would like to thank Libby for all of her ongoing hard work and continued unwavering loyalty to ISA. She has been a role model of service and an invaluable member of our community.
